Woman's dramatic shooting of armed home invaders caught on video

GWINNETT COUNTY, Georgia -- Dramatic surveillance video captures a Georgia woman turning the tables on three armed people who broke into her home.

The video shows the three burglars breaking in through the front door of the home - packed with supplies for a restaurant owned by the couple living there. They spread out and all three are seen holding guns.

Next on the video they are literally fleeing for their lives with bullets and drywall debris flying around them. The woman, wearing slippers and pajamas, is firing repeatedly at them with her own handgun.

They scramble quickly out of the home, with one suspect literally breaking through a glass door to escape.

A suspect wearing a wig was struck in the torso and died on the home's driveway, police said. The other two got away, but police are reviewing the tape to try to catch them.

The incident happened Sept. 16 just before 4 a.m. in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

"She exercised her right to defend her livelihood and property," said Cpl. Deon Washington with the Gwinnett County Police.

Police are hoping someone will recognize the faces on the video, which they said provides an unusually high caliber of images of the home invasion unfolding.
